I've played many games that run at 30 FPS, and that's never bothered me, either. Especially if it's a consistent frame rate. There are quite a few games that I'd rather have on the Switch as opposed to other platforms, too.

Yes, the hybrid element is worth noting, too. Never before this forum have I met a larger group of people who would willingly sacrifice anything just to make sure they can experience the game on the go. You can show them an objectively inferior port of a title on the Switch, but they’ll reply that they can play it on the go and that is the end of that discussion

For me personally, I only want to play games on the go that are designed with that in mind or games that aren’t demanding in my finger dexterity, like turn based tactics or JPRGs. I remember trying to play Rise in handheld and it sucked, despite it being designed for the Switch. I had to use a Pro Controller and if I was going to do that, I may as well just play it docked. I don’t have much interest in playing modern triple AAA titles in bed. Pokemon SV was an exception because the docked performance was so bad, playing it in handheld was the only way to make it bearable.

In terms of ray tracing, I personally haven’t ever seen ray tracing add enough to justify the performance cost, but the Spider-Man games on PS5 which dabble in a bit of Raytracing, while using adaptive resolution to make sure the target FPS remains as close to 60 as possible is the kind of middle ground I’d happily accept for console titles.

For what its worth, you'd find similar sentiments among the users of the Steam Deck and other handheld PCs. I.e. that it's generally not worth chasing frame rates above 30 for most games, because you'd have to trade away too much in terms of graphical settings and/or battery life to get there.

Obviously we're looking at devices a lot more powerful than the Switch in that market, that can make a better stab at many more modern games, but [email protected] remains the sweet spot for them in spite of that.

I will usually go for performance over visual fidelity.

Personally it feels that we're really getting diminishing returns when it comes to visual fidelity on the power consoles. Not to say that I see no difference between 1080p and 4k...but the difference is nowhere near as notable as the jump from 30 fps to 60 fps for me. I will almost always choose 1080p/60fps over 2160p/30fps. Performance modes in recent console games are a godsend.

As for raytracing? Not to dismiss the tech entirely, but in its current form I don't see the big deal. I can just about see the difference with side-by-side comparisons. Sacrificing performance for such a minor improvement? Forget about it.

When we're talking lower resolutions...i.e. 720p/60fps vs. 1080p/30fps...things become a bit more difficult. I think I'd have to choose on a case-by-case basis as to whether I'd sacrifice resolution or frame rate.

I'm by no means an fps snob...but definitely do appreciate the smoothness of 60fps. That said, as alluded to by previous posters, I'd happily sacrifice 60fps for the convenience of the Switch for many games.

I've played 50 hours of Persona 5 and think its overrated. Granted, I've still got another 50 hours to go but if your game requires 50+ hours to "get good" its probably not worth playing (exception being FFXIV). 60% of the game is dialogue, and most of it is inane and meaningless, either saying the same thing e.g. "let's take down Kamoshida" 50 times, fluffy, wishy-washy goop about friendship or badly localised gibberish. The story is also set up terribly into anime style arcs of taking down a villain, then moving onto the next. A bad guy wrongs a character in a way; the character gets angry and awakens their persona; the party beat the villain. It's hardly Oscar-worthy, let alone compelling. The only draw is finding out how Joker and the team ended up as depicted in the beginning. The combat and palaces are fun though, as are the confidant conversations but can they be hit or miss. Overall, I find the game unworthy of its massive praise and a classic case of style over substance.

My opinion on 30 v. 60fps changed substantially when i had the option to switch between them in PS5 games. I didn't think i'd care about it at all - but I do. Suffice it to say wether i select 30 or 60 depends on the game. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order feels very slow at 30fps, while Resident Evil VII benefited greatly from higher resolution and ray tracing.

I know I said this before, but this is how I feel about framerate...

30 FPS, playable. Any game I've ever played at 30 is fine, never had too much of an issue playing.
60 FPS, ideal. Very smooth and fluid gameplay, it's definitely a better experience than 30 FPS.
Anything above 60 FPS, the best experience. Playing Counter-Strike, Quake 3, back in the day above 224 FPS, so smooth! 120 seems to be the new standard, but PC's always had better framerates, this was my experience back in 2005 on my old PC.

Having experience games at higher framerates, doesn't change my opinion and experience on 30 FPS. They're better, but I still enjoy games even if they're at 30.

I never like Game Award because the winner is oftenly the disgusting rated 18+ games and I always felt repulsed by knowing the result.
Also, even I felt indifferent to see the majority of upcoming Switch games from Game Award.
Nothing interesting games for me.
Glad I didn't watch at all and that was the reason I left for 1 day to stay away from disgusting Game Award hubbubs.

@Anti-Matter why would anyone want to live in a world where everyone just like one type of game? Enjoys one type of game? It takes two got goty last time, it was rated E but no god forbid that a rated M game wins the award.

And let’s be honest, if youtuber life or epic chief became mainstream right now, it would make no difference to you, why is it because it’s popular, it=bad? It’s popular because that many people enjoyed it, it’s not like the devs just slapped the popular sticker on to the game, it’s there efforts being rewarded.

However, it’s your opinion, and it’s is the unpopular opinion thread, so no use in discussing my displeasure with this take further.

@Snatcher In short, he’s not into mainstream or adult/18+ games but makes a big deal out of his own opinion. Like you said, he’s allowed to have it, but the way he goes about it with words like ‘disgusting’ and hating anything that is ‘popular and mainstream’ just make him sound extremely contrarian for no reason at all… and that’s probably pretty accurate. Makes sense that you’d never want to agree with being contrarian just for the sake of it, but he can enjoy the games he likes just fine. Just throwing flack at mainstream stuff because it isn’t his thing, he’s not really hurting anyone with it, it’s just the repetitiveness of his take that gets a bit tiring. I’ve seen him say the same thing over and over after all and there’s not much discussion to be had.

A bit nonsensical but rather harmless in the end, and indeed perfectly fitting for this board : P

I keep buying fighting games for some reason, even though I barely got anyone to play against.

@Anti-Matter Society isn’t trying to make you like anything, do you know how many people don’t like god of war? How many people don’t like elden ring? How many people just don’t like violence, sexual content in general!

People don’t like fifa games for its practices, just dance fell down in popularity for idk way, but it’s not peoples fault they didn’t enjoy a game, just like how it isn’t yours.

M Rated games just happen to be more popular with people, because of the person behind them, your not going to be getting god of war level story telling from games like ratchet and clank or sly cooper, and they don’t need to, not at all, the people behind those games wanted to make them family friendly, so they did, god of war, didn’t, elden ring, didn’t, all sorts of those games just didn’t want to do that.

Again dislike what you dislike no one should tell you what to or what not to enjoy, never, but why do they have to be gross just because they wanted to make a game that’s for more mature players?

I agree with everything you said, your right, he’s not hurting anyone whatsoever and it’s fitting for the thread, I think you hit the nail right on the head, it’s the repetitiveness of the take. I guess I just feel like there is hate in places where I don’t think it’s deserved, but it’s his opinion, and he should be glad to have it, like I’m not trying to sound unreasonable or even just throw his opinion to the side, because I feel like it should be heard even if I agree or not, so I’m really not trying to seem like a jerk that just doesn’t respect opinions here by saying this. And he says things like he feels like he is being forced to like a specific thing, but I gotta be honest, it feels like he does that vary thing all the time.

When it comes to framerates and resolutions, I can't be the only one here who thinks the entire drive for ever higher values with both as being a bit silly. I started gaming with the European version of the Odyssey 2, for Gaben's sake! The pursuit of higher resolutions and faster frame rates is a game of diminishing returns, when you look at the arc of advancement from the late 80s (and before) all the way to current gen. Snobbery over 30fps at 720p is a Gen Z problem IMHO.
I still thoroughly enjoy retro games at their original resolutions and the regular framerates of the time. Upscaling is nice and all, but it's not a requirement. That said, if the settings allow for "modern" values, I go for those, just to see how far I can push it.
Art style, gameplay and general presentation are more valuable than the pixel counts or framerates.

And I've yet to see raytracing that pops on the screen. Yeah, you notice it in comparison, but in the end it isn't as impressive as the hype would demand. In a few years, it'll just be yet another element of graphics and effects that's just there. And it might get absorbed into other things. Anyone remember gouraud shading?

@Anti-Matter people get mad and pile on you because you have very specific tastes like preferring paw patrol to xenoblade 3 which is fine. And you want respect for you tastes which is also fine and normal. However you don’t respect othe peoples opinions. If someone were to go to a comment section of a paw patrol game you would defend it and say you dislike when people criticize a game you love. You then turn around and call games ohet people love “disgusting” for to what alot of people feel like arbitrary reasons.

@Anti-Matter people like mature content in media because sometimes it allows for more interesting stories. Real life isn’t sunshine and rainbows and really bad stufff happen. People just want thier entertainment to take what actually happens and tell a story

@Anti-Matter You don’t have to read this since you said that your done, I just want to leave my finale take.

It’s fine not to like any of those things, a few stuff you listed I don’t like, I don’t understand how people enjoy it but they do, and that’s just fine, I don’t think there gross for it, like I said, it’s your opinion, and you shouldn’t let some random person on the internet tell you, that you need to like something, because you don’t.

So I’m sorry I made you mad, I really wasn’t trying to. I just don’t think a person should be labeled as lesser then just because they enjoy a type of game.

@Snatcher I really do not get why people are STILL trying to explain to him why he is not liked

Just let him be in his echo chamber of loneliness and start crying that nobody wants to chat with. This happens occasionally btw!

Only bad things will happen if I start also start posting of how disgusting is that he is salivating over drawn six pack guys in kids video games.

After each of his provocative posts there is a wave of people that are trying to explain to him to be respectful ... and that is happening for YEARS now.

If I have to pick one words that describes him it is "sad".
